Wanted: 510s for R&T article

Postby boostedlegowgn » 25 Jul 2017 10:26

Hello everyone. My name is Brendan, and you remember that I wrote up Art's 510 for the Sun a while back. I also write for Road & Track, and am looking to do a short piece for the website marking the upcoming 1967 reveal of the Bluebird, and the car's subsequent success and fanbase over the next 50 years.

I figured the best way to do this would be to get a few local owners together for a mini-photoshoot, maybe pop up to the Cypress parking lot or what-have-you. Doesn't need to be stock cars, as I'm a bit more interested in gathering a few stories of why everybody loves them, modifies them, etc.. Then I've got Pete Brock's contact for some historical perspective.

Anyone interested please send me an email: brendanmcaleer@gmail.com, and we'll see if there are dates that lineup for everybody. If we get it done early enough, I can get a plug in for the All Japanese Classic in north van, try and get a few more cars out of storage.

thanks!

I would be interested in that, as I have been involved with 510's since 1969 and raced them since 1975 for Solo, hillclimb, etc. Still have my highly modified 1973 Turbo 510 that is a street driver also.

I plan to leave the plant about 8:00 AM, as that should give us a good window to be there on time. The hiking masses hit there quite early also, so I hope that is early enough for us.

50 years..wow...and I have been involved with Datsuns now for 48 years, who would have thought a `19 year old kid would have stuck with a marque for so long, that became a life's hobby and passion!?

When I think of the cars that I had been involved with over the years, specially when I first started driving, they were 10 and 18 years old at the time, dinosaurs in my mind, yet, now I have a car that is 44 years old, I would never have projected that would happen.
